twisted kidnapping-star-crossed lovers psychodrama doesn't leave you guessing
11 July 2000 | by (west coast of AZ) – See all my reviews

truth is i figured the super secret plot twists 30 minutes into the flick but being a childhood fan of melissa gilbert (Laura from "Little House on the Prairie") i stayed on to watch her go through the throes of resurfacing after a terrifying kidnapping and repressed memory trauma. gilbert is quite impressive when it comes to weeping, shrieking and cringing, all of which she is called upon to do in great abundance. ronny cox, like gilbert, looks quite a bit older than from his TV salad days, still does a credible job playing gilbert's uncertain dad, who learns to love his wife the more as he comes to distrust his daughter. michael reilly burke (ersatz TV dreamboat, ie. "Creature" & one of the many hunks de jour on 90210) plays the title character, gilbert's childhood sweetheart who can't tell who to trust. snappy black 'n' white flashbacks pump up the tension, but the real mystery is what will be playing in the next commercial break. guaranteed filler for two hours; but don't expect to hold your breath.
